A duck in the city

Invariably, one of my treats each day is to read Cute Overload. It really is an overload of cuteness each day. Read co's story, Duck Darwin Awards, a suspenseful tale of a confused mother duck in Downtown Spokane who laid ten eggs in a nest in the corner of a planter that is perched over 10 feet in the air. As the ten ducklings hatched, the mother duck needed to get her brood to leap from a ten foot high ledge and negotiate 2 full blocks to walk across traffic, crosswalks, curbs, and pedestrians to get to the closest open water, the Spokane River. Luckily, the heroic office staff of the Sterling Bank gave mama duck assistance all through the process. Nice work, ladies and gentlemen. Give yourselves a hand. Or better yet, go out for several drinks after work today. You earned it.

Those little ducks are soooo cute! They reminded me of mine when they were tiny guys. Be sure to check out more stories, videos and a great photo gallery at
